Serpico

Al Pacino built his reputation as an actor on the early work he did in films like the Godfather series, Scarface, Dog Day Afternoon and the 1973 cop classic Serpico.

Based on a true story, Pacino plays a hip young cop railing against institutional corruption in the New York City Police Department. Directed by Sidney Lumet, and filmed entirely on location in New York, the movie won Pacino a best actor Oscar nomination.

It’s straight old school 70’s awesome that sent ripples through the law enforcement community and at the same time managed to set a new standard in pre-disco fashions.
